Partez à la découverte du canton historique de Cooktown lors de votre voyage à travers le magique parc national de Daintree, classé au patrimoine mondial, et la célèbre Bloomfield Track, lors de cette excursion en 4x4 au départ de Cairns, Northern Beaches et Port Douglas. Le trajet est tout aussi spectaculaire que la destination. Aventurez-vous dans la forêt tropicale, l'arrière-pays et la Daintree River avant d'atteindre Cooktown, première colonie européenne d'Australie, où vous disposerez de temps libre pour visiter le musée James Cook (facultatif).
Our Tour Guide Cathy, was extremely knowledgable as well as a very safe and competent driver. Cathy made our day lots of fun and her local knowledge was amazing. The stops that we made along the way on The Bloomfield Track far exceeded our expectations. Our morning tea stop in The Daintree was so idyllic. We stopped at an Indiginous Gallery in Wujal Wujal. The artwork and jewellery, all done by women, was also amazing. We had a beautiful lunch and then went to visit the iconic Lions Den Hotel, established in 1875. Cooktown is a very quaint town. We traced some of Captain Cook's steps, ironically visiting on the 247th Anniversary of his landing in Cooktown.We returned to Port Douglas on The Mulligan Highway. We travelled as a party of 4 and all would highly recommend this tour to anyone with a sense of adventure and a love of our beautiful country. This tour has now whet our appetite and we are considering a trip further north to the tip of Cape York. Thank you for a fabulous day.
The tour to Cooktown via the Daintree National Park was the spectacular highlight of our visit to the Cairns region. Our driver Greg was very knowledgeable about the environment and history of the region. He was also very helpful throughout the day, friendly and interesting, all while driving safely on some quite difficult roads. Morning tea in the forest was really good with fresh scones. Lunch was a choice from a fairly limited menu but the food was well-prepared and tasty. The only low spot was the stop for dinner - the timing was too early due to the constraints of the schedule and the food was pretty ordinary. I realize it's probably the only place to stop and some might want to eat before getting back to Cairns.
Overall it was a great tour, with a lot to see packed into a single day. I learned a lot about the history, culture and natural environment of the area.
Although unable to take the Bloomfield Track (due to FNQ's notorious summer weather) the tour was most enjoyable with one of the best and most informative driver/guides I have experienced. Time constraints prevented an overnight stay in Cooktown but with so much to see, I strongly recommend that future 'tourists'
avail themselves of this option.
Diese Tour ist jedem Besucher zu empfehlen. Der Tour-Guide war super!! Das Essen sowie die Pausen waren gut organisiert. Abends gab es einene zusätzlichen Stop mit einer Mahlzeit (extra Kosten). Daher muß man etwas Bargeld mitbringen. Jedem Touristen sicherlich weiter zu empfehlen. Die Hin- und die Rückfahrt gehen über verschiedene Strecken, sodass man wirklich viel Landschat zu sehen bekommt. Leider wurde diese Tour (habe schon mehrfach bei vorangegengenen Besuchen in Cairns diese Option gebucht) oft wegen Teilnehmermangel abgesagt.
